Menstrual Cycle Day 28


What is happening internally?

The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone to maintain the uterine lining until the placenta takes over. The zygote (fertilized egg) is increasing in size and growing larger every day. The amounts of hCG are increasing, and are high enough to result in a positive pregnancy test. If conception did not occur, the amount of progesterone being released begins to drop due to the corpus luteum dying. The lining may begin to slough off.

Outward symptoms:

Basal body temperatures remain high above the coverline and may even steadily rise higher. Cervix may be low, firm and closed, or slightly raised and softer. Cervical fluid is dry or it may become creamy. You may experience bloating or water retention. You may experience a headache. You may have to urinate frequently and may or may not experience food cravings/aversions and fatigue. If conception did not occur your basal body temperature may be dropping down due to the corpus luteum dying. Cervical fluid may be creamy to watery and tan in color. You may have water retention, headache, moodiness, spotting and cramps. You may have bleeding start making this day 1 of a new cycle.

Hi i am 24 years old. my lmp was on oct 22, and my cycle day is usually between 27 and 28 days. i had unprotected intercourse last night, and was wondering if that would/could result in me becoming pregnant.

I'm on cycle day 28. i'm 3 days late for my period, as i usually only have 25 day cycles. i'm have cramping, sore breasts, bloating, i'm extra tired, and emotional. but, i tested negative yesterday. could i be pregnant, or can cycles suddenly change lengths?
